New royal bride, Meghan has gained widespread attention for her tactile relationship with her husband, Harry, holding hands with him at nearly every engagement.
But, the Duchess of Sussex will be noticeably absent from Harry’s side during a key overseas tour.
The soon-to-be mother has opted to sit out on a two-day visit to Zambia due to health concerns. And Prince Harry will now undertake the trip alone.
Meghan Markle does not want to take any risks.
According to a royal insider:-
“Meghan is exhausted and expressed serious concerns about travelling to a country with even the smallest Zika threat. In the end, it was agreed that Harry would go alone”.
“Meghan will rest-up and spend some quality time with Doria, who is down in the UK visiting. The Duchess is pacing herself. But stated she will carry out as many royal engagements as possible in the coming months”.

“The new royal bride will obviously be pacing herself in the months to come. But, she and Harry have had busy schedules recently and she will undoubtedly do as many duties as much as it is possible for her”.
“Meghan Markle will not be accompanying him as she has recently undertaken an exhaustive four-nation tour of the Pacific”.
The Duke of Sussex departed for Zambia on Sunday evening.
He is visiting the African nation as a representative of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. He will attend numerous events, including a reception at the British High Commissioner’s Residence.
